The day dawned bright, cold and dry. Sunny was hesitant to leave the warm confines of her kennel, and I had every article of clothing on as we left the truck. About halfway through the morning, the first flurries showed up, and within the hour the ground had a light dusting of snow. We hunted until one and moved 5 coveys, but decided to call it a day after lunch to give the birds a rest. I had two pretty males in the vest and am not particularly greedy. Sunny barely stirred in the back seat when I stopped for a coffee on the way home.

My truck still has a faint stink of wet dog. I don’t particularly mind.

      It’s been a slow year. But my expectations were low with my new pup. Regardless, we’ve had fun. Like you said, hoping for the right rain and better numbers next year.
